Wow! Meet 21-year-old Ella, Brad Pitt’s new Girlfriend

By  | 

Hollywood heavyweight Brad Pitt looks to be well and truly over his split from Angelina Jolie following reports he’s now dating British actress Ella Purnell.

It’s said to be the first serious relationship the actor will be embarking on since his bitter split from ex wife Jolie last year, though there were rumours of an affair with Sienna Miller, and a brief crush on a beautiful artist while working at an art sculpting studio in LA.

He’s was reported to be taking things gradually, but all that changed when he met and fell for Ella, 21, who, in an ironic twist played a young Angelina Jolie in 2014 fantasy Maleficent.

According to close sources who spoke to In Touch, the pair have fallen for each other and Brad is “so enchanted” by Ella that he’s cast her in his upcoming Starz series Sweetbitter.

It’s understood to be love at first sight as Brad fell the moment he set eyes on her in the 2016 film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, in which she plays Emma.

“Brad had Ella in mind from the get-go. He went out of his way to cast her,” a source told In Touch.

“Ella is incredibly flattered by all the attention she’s getting from Brad. She’s told friends he’s always been her No. 1 celebrity crush.”

The age difference between them (Ella is only five years older than Brad’s eldest son Maddox) is said to be a source of worry for Angelina, who also hates that Brad’s rolling with someone who played a version of her in a film.

Ange, meanwhile hasn’t been into anything serious with anyone since her 12-year marriage to Brad hit the rocks.

Feels like a matter of time now…
